An Evening of Haircuts and Tears!

This is Paul in a "before" photo. He is handsome and kind, but a bit top heavy. His hair is starting to take over his personality and become one of those places you want to visit, but not for long.

This is Paul after the hair cut. Much sweeter, the hair has been put back into it's place, it has been clipped and humbled. We must do this at least every 4 weeks or his hair begins to take on a personality of it's own.

Next Seth. What can I say, he wont even let me take a picture of him without his screwy face pulling. I am just about done with this child, and his hair is often the debate of the day. He gets the curl from both his father and his mother. He is stuck with it. I'm never sure if I should cut off more or leave on more. The fight is about all I can stand to have him let me cut any at all. Seth never combs his hair and I really feel sorry for his future wife because the wedding photos will need to be done right after his hair is cut because he has no idea how to even use a comb!

Now here is the after photo, you will see that I had to threaten and chase him around the house to get it. The before photo, came with threats as well. Oh, to have a photo of my son that is not with him pulling a "funny" face.

Next, Ari. There were never more tears or complaining than what Ari can put out. It was all so miserable that we didn't get any photos. It was just better to let him go and get in the shower!

Now Aidan: He is just so scared that I am going to cut his ear off that all I get are tears and wiggling. I think he should not be quite so upset as I have only clipped his ear once and not too badly.

I'm loving the blog. Very pleasant and enjoyable.
Please keep up the good work and feel free to ask for my input on anything.

Your children seem wonderful. Very much a family I would enjoy babysitting.

I'd love sharing more about myself on the ole blog, but I have to keep things very brief and nonpersonal because of my school administration.

However, I do not think we know each other. I will be trying to post more though.

Hair; why all the fuss? Oh yea it's all about what it says about me. Isn't that funny. I hope someday I grow into a gray-doo with grace. (Not today mind you!!!)

I'm just impressed that you know how to cut hair and that you do it so well. They all look VERY professional. It is interesting to see the different ways each of them deal with such a traumatic experience.

THe amount of hair in your home is UNREAL! I can imagine it beaing a big deal. I love that it's a big event, it's the same thing with Riley. He talks about how he is going to get his next hair cut for months, so strange!

I love that you have a great relationships with your teens, I hope I can take that one out of your book and learn how you did it. Everyone says how hard those years are but that's what I am most excited for, i love teenagers. Love you Karen, you will get through this hard time and the best part is that I know you will do it well. Love Ya!

I like the bum shot in the mirror of Aiden. Keep that one around in 15 years for his wife!\
